Team Abbi & Katie’s story
Why the Bumblee Children Charity:
The Bumblebee Children's Charity is a fantastic service available to children with a physical disability. Last year, Katie's niece Ellie was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She started attending sessions at the Bumblebee Children’s Charity last September and it has made such a difference. Using the ideas of conductive education, the children take part in activities that are repeated each week to help them work towards their personal developmental goals. The team are great at keeping the activities fun with fresh new themes each week. Ellie loves these sessions and all the friends she makes there. Katie's sister in law also benefits from being able to speak to parents in a similar situation. We're so lucky to have such an amazing service so close to home. They have a variety of equipment that kids otherwise wouldn't be able to access. For example this week Ellie had the opportunity to walk with three different walking frames which all helped her in different ways. Bumblebees make such a difference to families like mine and really need your support to continue their amazing work.
